Japanese rice bowls are all the rage and we are happy that the trend is here to stay. Besides Kuro Maguro which just opened earlier this year, we have discovered another gem in Tanjong Pagar that offers affordable donburi.
Salmon Samurai in 100AM Mall mainly features S$9.90 customisable salmon donburi sets. Of a mere 10-minute walk from Tanjong Pagar Station, the Japanese eatery’s prime location and hospitable service make it a popular dining location for those who are working in the vicinity.
Ready for this quick and affordable salmon don fix?
Salmon Samurai goes by an efficient semi-self service concept where diners will make payment at the counter and collect their utensils before taking a seat. Once your food is ready, the wait staff will bring them to your table.
We decided to go with brown rice for our Garlic Shoyu Salmon (S$9.90). The huge serving came with generous pieces of tender salmon and an onsen egg sitting atop a bed of warm and moist brown rice.
If brown rice is not your thing, you can also choose to have your salmon with udon or mixed salad. For more flavours in your bowl, there are also extra toppings such as avocado and ebiko.
Don’t forget to complete your meal with a Warrior Maki (S$9.90). We really enjoyed the combustion of flavours which came from the crab meat, salmon sashimi, fresh cucumber and savoury chicken floss. The creamy garlic mayo added an interesting sweet and sour note to it.
Apart from Garlic Shoyu Salmon, diners also have other choices including Salmon Sashimi with Avocado, Salmon Mentaiko, Spicy Salmon and Salmon Poke (S$9.90).
While options are rather limited, the dishes are hearty and unpretentious just the way we like it.
